Here are the details from my previous post on how you can participate in “Quilts of Valor”:

Needed: donation for “Quilts of Valor” project

Most of you that follow me on my personal Facebook, know that I am a retired Air Force veteran so “Quilts of Valor” (www.qovf.org) is dear to me.
As an textile and fiber artist, I like to contribute on a regular base, a handmade quilt to this Foundation that will be given to our wounded veterans.

To make this happen, I need your help. I will donate my time to design and make the quilts and I am asking you to consider donating: 100% cotton fabric in solid red, solid white, solid blue and patriotic print fabrics and help me with the supplies needed to make quilts to donate.
My husband will donate the money to ship the quilts to and from the long arm quilter and to the Foundation, where they will be given to our wounded veterans :)

This week I have been playing around with new quilt designs and I tested out a star pattern:

I forgot to iron it before I took the pic but it’s perfect :)

Worked for a little bit to put borders on the vintage flower quilt top which was ordered by one of my customers as a gift for a family member:

 

Still have to miter the borders, iron and find a backing fabric for this adorable quilt :)

 

I love the pretty fabrics used in this throw size quilt.

Meet Moose, my dog in Vietnam, show here with your Quilt of Valor. Now that the weather has gotten cooler here in California I am using the quilt on my bed and I must say it is an honor to sleep under it. I have never slept so well. It has been a real healing for me. Thank you and the girls who make this wonderful gift. It truly brightens up my life. Eric

Sausage/Mushroom quiche recipe

Tags

, , , , , , , , ,

So I needed some quiche in my freezer to be able to pull out instead of the nasty frozen dinners LOL

Simple fast recipe for Sausage/Mushroom Quiche

1 lbs of mushrooms (sliced)

1 lbs of Hot Italian sausage

1/2 cup of fresh parsley (chopped)

3 eggs

1 cup half-and-half cream

1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese (grated)

some salt

some pepper

1 unbaked 9″ pie crust

 

How to make this:

Preheat oven at 400F (200C)

Prepare the mushrooms into smaller sliced bites (no stems)

Crumble the sausages in a large skillet, add mushrooms, cook on medium/high heat until the meat and mushrooms are lightly browned and all the liquid from the mushrooms has evaporated. Drain off the grease. Add parsley.

Mushroom quiche1

In a large bowl, beat the eggs, adding the cream, cheese, salt and pepper. Pour into the mushroom/sausage mix; blending well. Pour mixture into the pie shell.

Bake in preheated oven for 25-30min, until crust is well browned and the filing is set. Let it stand for 10 min before serving

All done and here is my quiche :D (it has a good medium spicy bite to it)

Mushroom quiche2

Bon Appetite!!!

I adapted the recipe from allrecipe.com (Sausage Mushroom Quiche)
